English to German translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / capacitors
English term or phrase:static var compensator (SVC)
In an HVDC light installation, high-voltage capacitors are used in the DC link, where they stabilize the DC transmission voltage. HVDC Light is based on voltage source converters using turn-on/turn-off IGBT power semiconductors. This allows independent control of both the active and reactive power, and the same converter can be used as an SVC (static var compensator).
